conservative Christians and the 'the liberal agenda'

Using religion as a façade to mask prejudice is a practice that is truly reprehensible.

The religious right uses their moral belief system to decry the “LGBT agenda” which is, according to them, presumably immoral. But this belief is based exactly on what evidence?

Are some transgender people involved in the sex trade? Yes

Are some cis-gendered people involved in the sex trade? Yes

Transgender people cover the gamut like the rest of society and we don’t make up a monolithic group. All you need to do is read the blogs on T-Central to see the stark differences in style, focus and content.

The religious right and now increasingly the white supremacist alt-right alongside them, are pushing back on what they like to term the “transgender agenda” which is of course part of the wider "liberal agenda". These agendas mostly consist of live and let live and let God do the judging. Hence I would tell these fickle Pharisees to mind their own beeswax and worry about their own lives but these people just can’t do that.

Social conservatism is driven by one thing: fear of change. If you are a religious person what difference does it make to you what someone wears or who they love or what they believe?

The best example to give to others is living your life honorably and with dignity and hopefully that will inspire them by leading by example. But by using hateful discrimination the only thing you can guarantee is push back and disdain.

All I want to do is disown these people because they give religion and what it should really stand for a bad name.

As a side note this classless clown of a President elect is doing his best to drag the office into the mud by proposing he continue to appear on the Celebrity Apprentice. While I am not a trained mental health professional, I think I am on solid ground when I state that there is clearly something severely wrong with this 70 year old narcissist.

One transgender woman's take on AGP

This entry from the transhealth website dates back to 2001 and it offers a very nice dissection of the now mostly debunked but still controversial AGP theory and how this transgender woman could care two cents about it. People who have been trying to marginalize the experience of gynephilic transwomen have pushed for the stigmatizing idea that they are actually perverted men. Well this soul, who couldn't give a hoot either way, isn't buying any of it and her frankness at times had me chuckling to myself as I read her posting. If we ever met I would give her a hug for seeing through the BS but mostly for being herself: "About a year ago I was reading on Dr. Anne Lawrence’s site about a new theory of the origin of trans called “autogynephilia.” This theory asserts that many trans women—and transsexual women in particular—desire reassignment surgery because they are eroticizing the feminization of their bodies. The first thing that struck me about it, of course, was t

Never Say Never....

 I was certain that I would never post here again and yet, here I am. It’s been several years, and life has changed me yet again. I have burrowed further into my psyche to discover more internal truths about myself all in the silence of a life lived with more periods of reflective solitude than ever before. After attempting for many years to be a problem solver for others, I needed to dig deeply to discover who I was, which should be a necessity for all people and an absolute imperative for those of us who dare rub against the grain of conventional society. The most important thing we can do for ourselves is honor the internal voice which has driven us since childhood. That whisper which we were compelled to ignore through our initial indoctrination must be listened to again for guidance. I knew I had spent too long heeding messaging that wasn’t working for me as a trans person, and it was time to stop. For the world gleefully basks in a level ignorance and hypocrisy we are not abl

my last post

This will be my last blog post. When I wrote recently that this blog had another seven years of life in it I was trying to convince myself that it was true. It was in fact a little bit of self delusion. With almost 3,000 posts to date I have accomplished what I set out to do which was to heal myself and in the process share some of the struggle I had been through with others on the chance they might find some value in my words. After seven years of writing, my life still isn't perfect; no one's is. But I have discovered a path forward completely free of the trappings which society would have had me adopt so I could fit in. Over the last 25 years of my life I have turned over every stone I could find while exploring this topic and in the process realized that we haven't even begun to scratch the surface of this deeply complex subject. What I have ultimately learned is that my instincts have more value than what someone who isn't gender dysphoric writes about me. We
